Welcome to the Mark O. Hatfield Library!
As you’ll discover, the Hatfield Library is a treasured gem on campus. It is centrally located on campus, and it is a popular hangout place for group study sessions on the first floor and quiet study areas on the second floor.
During the academic year, the library is open from 7:45 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and closes early on Fridays at 9 p.m. During the weekends, the building is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sundays. The building is closed to the general public at 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and at 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and holidays. To view our current calendar, click here.
We also offer help with your research through individual consultations with librarians (set up an appointment here), online chat, and in-person help at the reference desk in the library (M-Th 10 a.m-9 p.m., Fri 10-4 p.m., Sun 3-5, 6-9 p.m.). The hours for our Archives and Special Collections are 9 -12 p.m., 1-4 p.m.
